Inquiry: Matter and Material

Theme: How the world works

Field trip:  Jay Laxmi Foods Dr. Nuts Chocolate Factory

Visit to a chocolate factory on 27th January,2017 for Grade V was very interesting as it was about matter and how matter plays an important role in science and technology. Children learnt about interchangeability of matter and how to make candy lollypop by dissolving sugar in water. Some of the sucrose molecules start separating from one another because they are attracted to the water molecules . When water and sucrose molecules are close to each other, they interact through intermolecular forces that are similar to the intermolecular forces between sucrose molecules. They have seen the process of making chocolate with cocoa  butter, sugar,Vanilla and other ingredients.
